The Edinburgh International Children’s Festival is returning in 2019, from 25 May to 2 June, with an exciting programme of theatre and dance for children and young people. This year, the Festival is celebrating its 30th birthday and promises to challenge, excite and inspire in equal measures.


And if I Were me 

What will I become?

In a giant transformable cube, three creature-dancers emerge, grow and unfold. They slither, squirm, jump and evolve, becoming unique beings, each with their own personalities. A humorous and breathtaking dance performance fizzing with energy, looking at change and metamorphosis. This whimsical and quircky dance production examines what makes each individual distinctively ‘me’.

A surprising performance, fresh and poetic. The choreography is quivering with joy” La Terrasse
